Tiger Woods


TIGER WOODS: It was a tough day.

Q. Did you loosen up at all?

TIGER WOODS: No, I wish that was the case. I thought it might loosen up a little bit, but it didn't. I was hoping the spasms would go away, but that didn't happen, either. I just had to get through it somehow and post a number.

Q. What's harder, playing today or playing Sunday at Bay Hill?

TIGER WOODS: At least there I could go ahead and throw up and be fine. I felt fine.

Here, I had a hard time turning either way. I don't know how it looked on TV, whether or not my shoulder turn was halfway decent, but it sure didn't feel very good.

Q. (Inaudible).

TIGER WOODS: I was trying to relieve the pain because any time the shoulder blade goes back and contracts, it's when I get the unbelievable shooting pain, and that's usually right at impact and just beyond it.

Q. (Inaudible).

TIGER WOODS: Once I hit driver on the range and I could carry it over 200 yards, I figured I was all right. I could probably play and kind of roll it down the fairway somehow. I was able to do it today.

Q. You hit some nice long putts.

TIGER WOODS: That helps. I figured if I could just get the ball on the green somehow, I've been putting great, it's just a matter of getting on the green and making putts. I was hoping I could get there in regulation and I did that most of the day and made a lot of putts.

Q. What about the weekend, Tiger? Are you looking forward to it?

TIGER WOODS: I'm just trying to get to tomorrow.

Q. Taking it day by day?

TIGER WOODS: I have to. I don't know how it's going to feel tomorrow; whether or not today is going to make it feel worse tomorrow, I don't know. Hopefully that's not the case. Hopefully I feel better tomorrow, that each and every day it'll feel better. That's the hope at least.

Q. (Inaudible).

TIGER WOODS: No, I didn't feel where -- a couple shots I hit hurt quite a bit, but the spasms would let go by the time I got to the ball and I was all right.

Was there any time where I felt like quitting? No. What keeps me going is I guess I'm very stubborn.

Q. What were you taking for it, the pain?

TIGER WOODS: I've got a few painkillers in there, on board right now, definitely some anti-inflammatories going, and hopefully a little traction will make it feel better, too.

Q. Do you have anybody rubbing your back, anything like that? I saw Steve putting Ben-Gay on your back on No. 3.

TIGER WOODS: He did it about five, six times today. I guess that was to try and keep it warm, but he couldn't believe the knots in it. He said it feels like you've got a sleeve of balls in there.
